Shibari in Warsaw Poland 2017 (Shibari Dojo Warsaw)

We had a wonderful time at the Warsaw Shibari Dojo in Poland. Our visit was short but very enjoyable (and a bit exhausting). We hope we’ll be going again soon.

The weekend began with a bit of a shock as when we tried to checkin online for our flights we found our return flight had been cancelled. We got an alternative booked but we were worried for a while we’d have to call off the weekend. We got a flight though it unfortunately meant we’d have to get up at 4am to get to the airport to fly back. Still it was better than getting up at 3.30am for the flight out.

Collected by our hosts from the airport and back to his place gives a small glimpse of Warsaw. On arrival we had some tea and then a nap. Yeh I know, it’s the jet set life alright! Suitably refreshed and feeling like I’d been asleep for a year after only an hour, we were in shape to be sociable and have a nice chill out with our hosts.

I have to say we had a very good nights sleep and a special above and beyond mention goes to our host for making us feel so welcome in his home.

Next day a home cooked breakfast and off to the workshop.

The first day of a workshop is always interesting as we never know the levels of those attending especially when visiting somewhere new. There was I think it’s fair to say the largest range of skills in this workshop as any we’ve ever taught. One couple had only just bought rope before attending the workshop and were completely new to shibari, others were well established in their journeys.

All I can say is that everyone made a great effort and there were lots of tired people at the end of the day but they were making good progress.

Shibari show

We performed at (so help me I can remember everything about the place but its name) and did a good show, we had a lot of fun there and there were some very abstract acts and lots and lots of latex in the club. Really a great place, too bad I can’t remember what it’s called. Maybe someone can remind me.

About the Author:

WykD_Dave (Dave Rickman) is a UK-based shibari bondage enthusiast, who now teaches and performs internationally accompanied by his partner Clover. He started exploring bondage 27 years ago and was autodidact for the first 17 years, until a lesson with shibari professional Osada Steve changed his way of tying. Dave loves Japanese style rope work, and decided to dedicate himself to this. “It isn’t about the rope, it’s about the expression, the look in the eyes, the hopelessness, the agony”. Now, Dave & Clover teach and perform all around the world. He takes great pleasure in seeing people get it and open their minds to what rope bondage can really be. “Not just a means of restraint but a much deeper and personally connected experience than any other I’ve ever found.” Running into Dave means running into his lovely partner Clover. She is very passionate about shibari bondage too, she models and performs, as well as makes impressive photos of Japanese rope work done by Dave. Her photography focuses on the feelings involved in rope play, not just the pretty ties, and she tells stories with her pictures. Dave: “Of course Clover’s a huge part of everything. Without her photography would people ever have noticed?”
